Digga D is a young rapper slowly becoming a well-recognised name in the UK music scene. He has continuously been commended for his unfiltered lyrical content while showcasing technical ability, charisma and an unorthodox flow.
Despite the many hurdles and setbacks he has faced since the start of his career, he has managed to accumulate over 120 million global streams and this year became the first solo drill artist to be nominated and win an AIM Independent Music Award. His 2019 hit single ‘No Diet’ peaked at #20 in the UK singles chart and has amassed over 20 million YouTube views to date. His mixtape ‘Double Tap Diaries’ charted at #11 shortly after, making it the highest charting debut for a UK solo drill artist ever. His latest two singles ‘Chingy’ and ‘Woi’ both went top 25 in the Official singles chart and just this week, ‘Woi’, was BRIT certified Silver,
‘Defending Digga D’ as a film follows Digga as he is released from a 15-month stint in prison, at a pivotal moment in his life. He is intent on making a success of his music career, but that’s not straightforward. Digga D is one of the first musicians in British history to be given a police Criminal Behaviour Order controlling his creative output. It means he is not allowed to release any music, or videos, without telling the police. If the music breaches the terms of his CBO - for example ‘inciting or encouraging violence’ - they can take it down and arrest him. This film tells the story of how Digga D comes back - and who is helping him.
